Reflexology is the holistic understanding, study and practice of treating points and areas in the feet and hands that relate to corresponding parts of the body. Using precise hand and finger techniques, a reflexologist may improve circulation, induce relaxation and enable homeostatsis. This encourages the person’s own healing systems to be activated to maintain wellbeing.

You do not have to be unwell to enjoy the deep relaxation and sense of wellbeing that reflexology induces.

Reflexology FAQs

The art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, Indian and China. In 1913 Dr William Fitzgerald brought this therapy to the west after noting that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body. Euince Ingham developed this further into what we know as reflexology today and it is now widely recognised by health care professionals as being both effective and valuable. It is a natural and simple therapy which helps your body to heal itself, to stimulate healing.
You should wear loose, comfortable clothing for your reflexology session.
No – you will only be required to remove your shoes and socks or tights if you are wearing them. I will also place a blanket over you so both warmth and modesty will be retained.
Yes. In my experience clients who come for treatments with ticklish feet rarely find the sessions to actually be ticklish. As I have a firm pressure this typically alleviates any tickly sensations.
I have a firm pressure and there may be areas of discomfort or tenderness, however, there may also not be. Any tenderness felt should be within your comfort level and pressure can be altered to ensure that it is. People often describe any pain they feel as a “good hurt” and any discomfort should be short lived. Typically tender areas signify blockages in the body system being worked on and the reflexology will help to remove the blockage and bring the body back into balance.
No, a reflexologist is not qualified to diagnose medical conditions. Reflexology will highlight which areas in your body are out of balance however if you need a diagnosis you should visit your G.P.

After the session you should feel relaxed with an improved feeling of wellbeing. You may also feel energised and calm at the same time. It’s common for clients to tell me they slept well the night of a treatment. You may experience a “healing reaction” where any symptoms you came with could feel slightly worse initially although this is them “getting worse to get better” and will be short-lived. You could also feel slightly nauseous, tired or have a headache. This is due to the blood toxicity levels rising with the increased circulation and the toxins not being removed from the body quickly enough. To help ensure this does not happen it is advised to increase your water intake in order to flush out the toxins. If you do not experience these symptoms they should pass in 24 hours or 48 hours at the most.

The number of sessions varies and is determined by the client’s health and reasons for seeking reflexology. A general recommendation is to schedule an appointment once a week for four to six weeks. We will review and revise your treatment plan at regular intervals.
